Any chance anyone would be willing to sell me a 17 rd rebuild kit? For the sake of science of course!

Glocks are made for hot ammo because they are a military gun is b.s.! Glocks for years never had problems feeding any kind of ammo that was SAMMI Spec or NATO. WWB is SAMMI spec. Beretta's, SIG's, HK's, CZ's, and on and on are all made to NATO Specs but shoot any SAMMI spec ammo. Weak ammo and limp wristing were excuses Glock has tried to use in te past couple of years to cover up problems with the newer guns.
According to your owners manual Glocks are made to shoot SAMMI spec or NATO spec ammo. So even though one of their techs might try and get you to buy the weak ammo thing it goes against what is stated in their owners manual. If you need hot ammo to get a gun to function the ammo is covering up a problem with the gun. No where am I aware of Glock changing the specs on the type of ammo you should use in their guns to get them to function to only include hot loads. Again in spite of word of mouth the owners manual says "SAMMI or NATO spec" ammo. WWB is within SAMMI specs and works in my older 9mm Glocks.

All of my glocks will eat Tula...heck my kahr cm9, which are notorious for choking on cheap ammo, will run Tula fine.

M&Ps being a disaster is news to me... I hear more about Glock G4 issues than anything else.

I'm inclined to agree. My Gen 4 21 had NO problems with cheap ammo, or limp wristing. I shot it minutes after I had my FTE's on the Gen 4 17.

Im about to give up and get a P226.

So I'm boxing up my Glock to send for service. I figure they have more ammo then I do, let them deal with it. Is there anything I should know before I send it? They're sending me a shipping label.

It would be really nice to know what they do to fix it. Many would probably fix theirs themselves thus saving Glock the expense.
